The windshields of BS-6 four-wheel vehicles are being stuck with a green strip of 1 cm thickness over the sticker containing the registration details.
An S.O. to this effect was released on Friday, 5th June 2020 by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) mandating a strip of green color of 1 cm width on top of the existing sticker carrying details of registration for BS-VI vehicles of any fuel type i.e. for petrol or CNG which have a light blue color sticker and a diesel vehicle which is of orange color. According to the new mandate, all these stickers will now have a green strip of 1 cm thickness on top of the vehicle. The emission standards of BS-VI mandated with reference to 1st April 2020 provide for mandatory use of stickers and cleaner emission norms and that these emission norms should be with a par with the rest of the world.
The same mandate regulating different colors and such distinct identification standards of emissions to be used are also being followed in various countries. In India, this standard had been requested by the government and therefore has been introduced accordingly.
